Here are PennDOT Instructions for 511PA Mobile App  Remember not to "interact with the App" while driving your car. (Better yet ... Ride ATA and enjoy this new 511PA mobile app while on board your ATA bus).

  • Launch the hands-free 511PA application before you put your car in drive. You will hear active PennDOT advisories that are near you. Now put down the phone and focus on driving. There’s nothing on your phone that you need to touch or read. Just listen for travel alerts.
  • The 511PA app will remain "on" while you drive, automatically activating when you approach an area impacted by a PennDOT advisory. The app will broadcast any travel alerts for reported conditions within a set mile-range (that you can set for yourself) of your current location.
  • Conditions will be broadcast once, and then the broadcast stream will go quiet until there is an update to an advisory near you; or you have come within range of another advisory; or a set time period has elapsed (that you choose) and you want to re-hear all advisories that are still in range.
  • While the app has additional features in the "More Features" section, PennDOT reminds motorists to not interact with the app while driving.
  • What happens if I get a phone call while using 511PA Mobile App.
  • If you get a call, or make a call while a travel alert is playing, the alert will pause, and will resume playing when the call has ended. You can select to hear advisories while you are on and active call, provided that you have a data plan that permits simultaneous data and talk.
